It was three years ago today (January 22, 2007) that Burton Snowboards rolled out their Andy Warhol Foundation collaboration featuring boards, boots, and outerwear decorated with Warhol art. Now, in 2010 Burton’s skateboard company Alien Workshop appears to be doing the same thing, according to a post on their website.

As the preeminent American artist of the 20th Century, Andy Warhol challenged the world to see art differently. This distinctive project presents a new approach to skateboard/artist collaborations by pairing unique examples of Warhol’s groundbreaking artwork with each of the ten iconoclast pro riders sponsored by Alien Workshop. . . .Featuring five pro decks with works from Warhol’s Death & Disaster Series and five pro decks showcasing his iconic Pop works, the complete set is shipped in custom printed board box packaging inspired by Warhol’s box sculptures from the 1960’s.

Andy would likely be happy to see the same company recycling his art over and over again. We’re wondering when the Channel Islands dead artist collab will be announced, or did we already miss that one?
